Joan Taylor’s Mathematical Tiling

Joan Taylor is an amateur mathematician living in Australia who became hooked on the interlocking patterns of mathematical tiling artworks. In her explorations to try to find an aperiodic monotile, she discovered a new kind of tile which was subsequently published in a math paper, and she continues to explore and search for new tilings. Taylor walks you through her process on how these tiles are discovered — she might just inspire your own creations!
